Safety Inspections for your vehicle

Safety Inspections for your vehicle

  WHO'S LOOKING OUT FOR  YOUR SAFETY WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR VEHICLE? So you were most likely taught to look both ways before you cross the road. Tie your shoes so you don’t trip. Your parents instilled in you the importance of safety, and warned you of the dangers that might fall upon you if you didn’t take precautions. VEHICLE SAFETY So here we are in 2020 relearning to wash our hands, cover our mouths and keep our distance. These are all steps to keep ourselves safe and they all seem a little deja vu-ish if you ask most people (mama told you so.) In New Jersey the state used to require safety regulations to enforce Mama’s fine and early teachings.

Keep Your Vehicle Moving

Keep Your Vehicle Moving

YOU'VE GOT TO MOVE  With the stay home orders you may be feeling a little cabin fever, there have been more rainy days then sunny days the last few weeks. Being cooped up in the house can cause you to do less exercise, and therefore your muscles may feel tight. Doing some stretching and moving about is good for your body and mind. When it does come time to get out and move around in the nice weather you might feel some negative effects of being still. The same certainly applies to your vehicle. Being stationary in the driveway or garage may seem like it’s a blessing. You’re not putting on the commuter miles, you're not spending money on gas every week, you’re not due for an oil change because you haven’t gone anywhere. It seems like a good thing right? Actually, not moving your vehicle can cause some issues with it that you wouldn’t expect.    BRAKES ... read more
